Your Top Ten Favourite Albums If You Were Stuck On A Deserted Island


#1

A bit of a summertime thread to help us get through to the start of the footy.

The premise is simple:

You’re marooned on a deserted island with a portable CD player (that runs on solar batteries that can easily be recharged by direct sunlight) and you can choose any ten albums that you want (This can include double/triple albums like The Wall etc).

What would they be?

They don’t need to be in any order…just name the Album and the Artist.

(Apart from filling in a bit of time, I’m also hoping to find some new stuff to listen to)

Here’s my list:

Disintegration - The Cure

Decade - Neil Young

Dark Passion Play - Nightwish

A Perfect Stranger, The Island Anthology - Marianne Faithfull

Comalies - Lacuna Coil

Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin

The Interzone Mantras - The Tea Party

One More From The Road - Lynyrd Skynyrd

Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

Neon ballroom - Silverchair

The Darkness - Permission To Land

Eclectic list there, … Kanye?? Really?

All jokes aside, . what is it about The Darkness that floats your boat?


They’re fun.

And yes, that Kanye album is really well produced and is fantastic to listen to from start to finish.

Ahh, just realised you might be younger than I thought.

Looking at your list, it’s decieving, … could be either way.

Great thread.

I’ve been working on this in an ongoing way for a while. I only include studio albums that are for me as perfect from start to finish as they can get; and, within the ten, cover as much of my musical tastes as possible. So many miss out because they are unbalanced etc… or because they crossover style-wise with others. I love very old Blues, but as they didn’t make albums as such then, I can’t really include them. I haven’t included compilations at all, or I’d probably take LZ - Remasters etc. It changes a bit - like the ins and outs of a footy team. Here’s what I’ve got at this stage.

Beatles - White Album
Ween - The Mollusk
Beastie Boys - Paul’s Boutique
Fugazi - Steady Diet of Nothing
Mr Bungle - California
The Cult - Electric
Shellac - At Action Park
Prince - Sign Of The Times
Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti
David Bowie - Hunky Dory

■■■■■■■ hard work. The first three are non-negotiable. Have a shortlist of 20. That’s not even including metal, of which I decided to make a completely separate list (might be an idea for another thread).
I’ve also had a go at top ten favourite artists, top 50 favourite songs. Sorry for the detail, but I’m one of those guys when it comes to music. I was the guy who made endless compilation tapes as a teenager, just coz I loved trying to get it right. I still do it with I-Tunes etc. but back then it that was from vinyl to cassette, or with a double cassette player. Anyway…

In the 2 minutes since I posted I’ve changed The Cult - Electric, to Godflesh - Selfless and back again.
